Greetings Portland Writers,
We hope the summer is treating you well and shedding some new light on your creativity. Portland Women Writers has an array of offerings to spark your self-expression this autumn.

Sacred Story Writing with Dawn
Each of us is the author of our own life. However, many of the stories we tell over and over keep us from happiness and from realizing our full potential. In the sacred space of this workshop and on the cusp of the autumnal equinox, we'll take time to close our eyes, relax, and use the power of visualization to gain more awareness about what is ready to be transformed in our lives. Then we'll put pen to paper to honor and release the old story in order to create room for our next chapter.
Day/Time: Sunday, September 21, 1-5 p.m.
Location: SE Portland
Cost: $50
Contact: dawn@pdxwomenwriters.com or 503-654-1200
